Tigirlily, composed of two sisters from Hazen, will perform in this season’s Music in the Park.

A pair of Hazen sisters with a massive YouTube following is expected to be the biggest performance of this season’s Music in the Park.

Tigirlily, composed of sisters Krista and Kendra Slaubaugh, is slated take stage under the Mark J. Carlson Memorial Gazebo on July 30. Described on their website as “optimism personified ” the sisters’ song “North Dakota” garnered nearly 200,000 views on YouTube. They have performed at races, county fairs and fundraisers, just to name a few events, and they’ve shared stages with the likes of Gwen Sebastian and Chris Cagle.

Also during Tigirlily’s performance, the Rugby Lions Club will hold an art in the park event, where art will be sold by area vendors. The Lions Club will also hold a picnic that day.

This season starts with a familiar face. Oldies and country singer Rick Senger, of Devils Lake, opens up the 2014 season on June 4. He is slated to perform with his granddaughter, 14-year-old Alexandria Palmer.

Other familiar faces include Ron and Opal, a husband and wife country and gospel duo from Branson, Mo., who will perform on July 16. Yodeling cowgirl Kristi Goldade, from Wishek, will perform on Aug. 13.
